how seriously you take the rhetoric of the president of the united states. president obama said at the united nations that he was determined to prevent iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. do you regard that as a bluff? >> translator: you set forth two or three questions here. i have never used the word "bluff." when we say we do not take it seriously, we mean that it impacts -- it does not impact our policies in the slightest. iran is a vast country, is a great country. let's assume a few terrorists come and assassinate some of our officials. will the country be damaged? >> no.no. a couple of bombs will be set to explode. will t country be destroyed? no. we see the design of regime at the same level as the bombers and the criminals and the terrorists and even if they do something, even if they do something hypothetically, it will not affect us fundamentally, but, vis-a-vis, the expressions of the president of the united states because i do not wish to speak in any way about anything that may be interpreted as meddling with america's domestic or electoral affairs, but perhaps my

of the united states, barack obama. >> we have got a chance to make history in january 3. be a part of it. make showed to show up to caucus. let's go change the world. [applause] nice t-shirt. >> given enough time on camera any person who deals with it, this is a great example of it. you will not be able to resist saying that. you are just programmed to do that. so i think these things are real and they are very endearing and we kept it up through campaign on the internet and tried to maintain that into the white house but that is one thing started to get a little rough because on a campaign we had a lot of resources and technology and things we celebrated but coming to the white house, i went from a staff of six to having a staff of one which is six times less i think. i don't know exactly. i was then not able to envision projects because what was happening, look at the first real i was showing you. isaac ululating all these awesome shots of the president punching the easter bunny but i didn't have this 32nd campaign commercial venue to put this material out so i just started sitting on more a

president obama was back in nevada today. both candidates are battling hard for this battleground state. on the ground to get out the vote, carpet bombing the airwaves with political ads. >> my plan will create 12 million new jobs over the next four years. >> it's not just going to generate more jobs, going to create one more million jobs, tell me how, where. >> today it could be obama, tomorrow it could be romney. i can't promise anything. >> reporter: peplowski and lopez both hope the debates will help them finally make up their minds. bill whitaker, cbs news, las vegas. >> jeff: in afghanistan a fire fight today claimed the lives of two american, a u.s. service member and civilian contractor that happened in eastern wardak province. three afghan soldiers also died, and afghan army official calls it a misunderstanding between nato-led forces and afghan soldiers manning a check point. in iraq at least 26 people were killed in a series of coordinated car bomb attacks. nearly 100 others were hurt. no one has claimed responsibility. but one official called it a rallying cry by sunni extre

economy that fosters dependency? that is not who we are. in the live free or die state, we want to live free and prosper. [applause] when president obama came into office, he inherited a tough situation. there are no two boys about it. the problem is, the obama economic agenda failed -- there are no two ways about it. it failed because it was bad. he came into office with one party rule. host: paul ryan and new hampshire. our third party is still relevant? caller: good morning. relevant not as parties but in terms of spoilers. they have been relevant with mr. ross perot. i like him. i think he could have done wonderfully if he stayed within the republican party. i google this. we have had 132 third party presidential candidates going back to 1832 when it was the anti mason party or something like that. none of them have garnered much of the vote. there are mostly french candidates. i do not said derogatory. they do not have a lot of base. it is not that they are not popular because they get no media, they get no media because they are not popular. even ron paul and even ross perot. the

have shown us is that activityically significant gap and in the battle ground states, it's even worse like in ohio. all of a sudden they were neck-and-neck and a few months ago, romney was ahead and obama is 6 or 7 points ahead. >> you have to look at enthusiasm in those numbers and i think that is where they are aiming for. pun intended. it's to keep those enthusiasm numbers high and they are very high. they are high or about at the point you want them the week or two before the election. they are that high. and i think ryan did this, i don't finish it was a political stunt as much as it was him showing his personal side of who he is and he's a family man and he is an outdoors man too. >> i have to say this. i know gun control has not been a big issue in this campaign because i have to say obama has not really taken on the issue because the concern with the base but i was looking at a report by the children defense fund, they used the latest data on kids who have died of gun injuries. 5,740 kids have died because of gun injuries. for between 2008 and 2009, at the latest data. so i ju

of likely voters. in ohio, florida and pennsylvania, 51% say president obama would do a better job on the economy. no incumbent has won the white house without winning florida. ohio and pennsylvania are crucial states. steven, despite the economy right now, this weird optimism, is this the end of romney's chance to win? >> yeah, i think this upsurge in consumer confidence is hurting mitt romney, no question about that, ali. interestingly, i looked at the gallop data on consumer confidence, and they came to an interesting conclusion. they found that the big surge in consumer confidence on the economy was democrats, that democrats have had a huge surge where republicans have actually had a reduction in their confidence, and what they found, by the way, is that normally an increase in consumer confidence leads to the incumbent president doing better in the polls. they found in this case it was the opposite, that the increase in the numbers for obama in the polls has actually made democrats more optimistic about the economy. >> interesting. so the idea of who might win the election is

. so the europeans have suffered the more extreme experience like the united states have earlier. they played the same course towards us. we've got it under control. to quote president obama, we are on the long road to recovery. i hope many of you know the weblog was repeated [laughter] because it is a long road since we're nowhere near the end of it. there is a sense we are in recovery, those europeans. so you get bizarre formulations. one example. the europeans are in trouble because they are trying to preserve a danish social democracy, it kind of welfare system which the world can no longer afford and the silly europeans have they not appreciate it that now are paying the price. the detail here is the following, europe is very different. northern europe is coming through this crisis very well. germany, for example, is doing much better than united states. the shock over the last few years and basically across the entire crisis. we began at about 5%. we went up to 10% and were now at 85%. that's not a recovery at all. they are one of the best safety minister yuri. their safety

of state of the art technology and research while maintaining a moratorium on nuclear testing. thomas commented on the anniversary this past weekend. he said in april 2009 president obama shared his vision of a world without nuclear weapons. as we work toward that goal, we have the world's leading scientific facilities, the world's fastest computers, and the world's brightest minds working to insure we never again have to perform nuclear explosive testing in the united states. the effort that he describes helps maintain an effective nuclear stockpile in the absence of underground nuclear testing. they include the stockpile stewardship program run by the national nuclear security administration which maintains the continued safety and reliability of the nation's nuclear-weapons in the absence of nuclear explosive testing. a key goal is to increase scientific understanding of how nuclear devices perform as well as the behavior of the weapons materials to ensure a safe and effective nuclear deterrent. second is the life extension program. the extent the service life of the current weapon
